Measure and cut fabric

Craft Box Girls will give you three different ideas on how to make a Halloween wreath using fabrics, embroidery hoops and Dimensional Paints. For this first quote art wreath, measure and cut the fabric so it’s slightly larger than the embroidery hoop.

Glue trim onto fabric

Glue trim onto the fabric. Craft Box Girls chose striped fabric for this wreath, and glued the trim along the striped lines.

Secure and trim fabric

Secure the fabric between the top and bottom rings of the embroidery hoop, pulling the fabric taught as you secure it. Trim excess fabric from around the edges. Glue any fabric still remaining to the underside of the hoop.

Use a pencil to color over the back of pattern

To transfer the “Double Double Toil and Trouble” pattern onto the fabric, first flip it over and use a pencil to color over the back side of the pattern.

Trace to transfer onto fabric

Once you’ve covered the back side of the pattern, flip it back over and center it on your fabric. Use your pencil to trace over the letters, applying enough pressure to lightly transfer the wording onto the fabric.

Trace over quote art with Dimensional Paint

Trace over the quote art on the fabric with your desired color of Tulip Dimensional Paint. Add any additional accent designs if desired, then let dry completely.

Cut fabric to fit embroidery hoops

For the BOO wreath, repeat the process of cutting your main fabric slightly larger than the embroidery hoop.

Glue ribbon to fabric and secure between hoops

Cut two pieces of ribbon that extend past the width of the embroidery hoop. Glue across the center of your fabric, then secure between the top and bottom hoops, making sure the fabric is taught. Cut off excess fabric.

Color over back of pattern with chalk

Print out the BOO pattern and flip it over so the back side is up. Use a pencil or chalk to color over the back side. 

Transfer pattern onto fabric

Flip the BOO pattern back over and center it over the ribbon. Trace over the lettering, pressing firm enough to transfer the wording onto the ribbon.

Trace over wording and designs with Dimensional Paint

Use your chosen colors of Dimensional Paint to trace over BOO and the fabric designs as desired. Let dry completely.

Cut and secure fabric between hoops

For the jack-o-lantern wreath, cut and secure your main fabric as noted in the steps above. Then glue trim around the circumference and let dry. 

Cut out face and glue in place

Cut desired jack-o-lantern face shape from black felt or fabric, and glue in place centered on the wreath.

Trace around facial features with Dimensional Paint

Trace around facial features with Dimensional Paint and add eye accents as desired.

Glue stem and vines in place

Cut out a stem from felt, and coil chenille stems around your pencil to create curled vines. Glue everything in place at the top of the wreath, then let dry completely.
